FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:
One of the original Grand Banks model line up the Grand Banks 36 has definitely secured its status as a modern classic with over 1200 examples leaving the factory during a production run which spanned decades.

‘There’s a gentle almost imperceptible, transition from slow to full speed. It is all remarkably efficient, with no planing hump to breach, nor any burying of the stern. As it accelerates, great cylindrical walls of water begin to peel from its bows, while the water astern becomes a boiling cauldron of froth and bubble. No spray comes aboard, though, as it’s turned away by the roll of the topsides and projecting gunwale strip. Teak-capped bulwarks run the full length, also. From flybridge helm station, with it’s large timber-spoked wheel, it feels as thought you’re commanding a Navy destroyer……
On reaching your destination, you’ll appreciate the many ‘proper little ship’ features that the 36 has to offer. Big stainless steel fairleads and cleats; wide sidedecks and high guardrails; capstan winch that self feeds the anchor chain into an under-deck locker……….
Down below, in the warm and cosy cabin, is where the 36 shines. While it lacks the spaciouness of modern american cruisers, Grand Banks have employed this layour for decades and perfected the design and finish to a fine art…’
